Nick Young gets dunked on at the Drew League (VIDEO)

Aug 4, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

Not all highlights from the Drew League can be complimentary to current NBA players.

While there is plenty of Kevin Durant and JaVale McGee that goes on, the league also features some guys with top level talent who simply aren’t household names — and they get loose occasionally, as well.

Nick Young was victimized in this latest offering, and the man doing the dunking damage was Dijon Thompson, who made a couple of brief appearances in the NBA back in 2006 and 2007 before playing multiple seasons overseas.

    That was a pretty weak dunk… What I find troubling is the silly grin on Nick’s face afterwards. We had enough of the smiling last season in LAKERLAND with good ol’ smiling Dwight.

      what’s troubling is that Nick Young can’t shoot for beans, but that doesn’t stop him.

        Thanks. That made me laugh. If things go bad for the Lakers this year, folks aren’t going to like Nick laughing when they’re losing. He did a lot of that for the Wizards

        Don’t catch the man around the waist. Whatever you do, Nick, don’t do that – you aren’t the dude’s daddy. Just duck the hell out of the way if you need to.

      There is another smiley in your roster – Wes Johnson ;)

    That wasn’t bad at all. He didn’t commit to the block attempt. Just another play in another game.

    But I like this guys name – Dijon – not enough people are named after condiments.

    It’s only considered “dunked on” if the defender jumped. If they don’t jump, it’s only called getting “dunked by”

    Note: the only exception to the rule is the 7 footer in Vince Carter’s Epic Olympic dunk

    Move along, nothing to see here, move along

    By the way, Young might fool his detractors. Not a very good player but he has all the physical gifts and a nice shooting touch. Can’t think of anyone who I think turned it around at his stage of his career, but we shall see.
